.6% rate of the clinton years? he did not. so is there a little give ultimately to sort of say what if it doesn't go up to 39.6%, but say 37%, is that something the white house would accept? also, this that same interview, the president raised the possibility, which is that after you do tax reform and you close loopholes and deductions, that if the rate is raised, the top rate, there's always a possibility that after you do tax reform, of course, the top rate would then go down again. so it was -- you have to listen to the president very carefully to see where there might be some give. the problem from my point of view is that everybody knows what's got to be done in the long-term. it's the question of the short-term deal. >> john boehner, speaker of the house, he came up with a proposal. but not all the conservatives in the house and the senate are on board. jim demint, republican senator from south carolina. >> this is a time to negotiate with ourselves. we need to invite the president to work with us. his proposal was so outlandish, i don't think we should go back to the table un
on the people $250,000 and up to what they were under bill clinton. 600,000 new businesses were started, god forbid that should happen again. but the groundhog day element of this stephanie, is this. last year at this time, the president wanted to extent the payroll tax cut. the republicans stamped their feet and wanted tax cut for the wealthy. and the president stood his ground and they undid this by unanimous consent right before christmas. that's what is going to happen this time. >> stephanie: again, they say the president is not being clear. >> obama: just to be clear, i'm not going to sign any package that presents rates going up for folks at the top 2%. >> he wasn't clear enough. he didn't say which country. [ laughter ] >> he has to be much more precise. >> stephanie: jay carney excooed it again. >> a deal by republicans that rates on the top 2% the wealthiest americans, have to rise. there is no deal without that acknowledgment, and without a concrete mathematically sound proposal. >> stephanie: oh my god, i'm reading the chyron right now. the white house has on
president clinton was in office, he left this country in the black. the people have weighed in. they've indicated that we want to move forward, we want to put people to work but we want to do it in a fair method of doing it. and that is not cutting programs that impacts the working poor in this country. mr. garamendi: well, you're absolutely correct about that. the proposal to cut medicare benefits is a nonstarter. there are things that can be done in medicare to reduce the costs and much has already been done. i'd like to ask my colleague from the great state of michigan to join us, mr. curson is a new member, came in during a special election. welcome. delighted to have you join us. mr. curson: thank you. i agree wholeheartedly with what's been said so far and the testimony, what i really want to say -- into the mic. what i really want to say is medicare is run more efficiently than nearly any insurance company in the world. they devote less than 2% of its funding to administrative expenses, and you compare that to a private insurance company that costs up to 40% of premiums for in
get something done on this. >> yeah, done. d-u-n. right. i love what the former president bill clinton, the analogy, just a kabuki dance, he said, they're like two dogs that meet over a piece of meat, they sniff each other out. they're all move torgdz a deal. that's what is going on before we head over the cliff. >> no one puts it in layman's terms, no one does it as well as bill clinton. putting it in terms everyone understand. this is our visual. this is the cliff. end of the year. this is high tech. >> yeah. >> oh! what, ha ha. but see. that's right. negotiations never go in a straight line. yeah. >> little crooked there. got somer use today. hanging left. >> i hate that. >>> bizarre turn this morning for soft wereware tycoon john mcafee. he was arrested in guatemala last night for entering the country illegally and now there is word that immigration authorities are about to send him back to belize. before his arrest, mcafee spoke exclusively to abc's matt guttmann in guatemala city. >> reporter: after weeks on the lam, software security pioneer, john mcafee has resurfaced in guatem
. going back to the clinton tax rates, remember, the average american family has taken a hit. median income four years ago was $54,000 a year. it is about $50,000 a year now. this portion of the population has been squeezed. adding taxes on 90% will not be helpful. how much do you want folks to bear? freezing those tax rates for the overwhelming majority of americans is a smart thing to do. host: you said fight later on. guest: the fight would start the next day. we could do what i'm talking about, and negotiations could continue. doing what i'm talking about does not violate what either side is fighting over. they both say this is something we want to do. why not make sure we do not have some last-minute failure at the end of december. guest: what gives you confidence that democrats would agree later on? guest: this is where i disagree with some of my colleagues. they seem to think the american people are leveraged, and this is the democrats leverage. our leverage is in the spending and entitlement issues. the president and his negotiators are smart and able people. they know the re
